Hi, I’m Olga Massov, a freelance food + lifestyle writer and cookbook collaborator. As of March 2019, I am spending a few days a week as an assignment editor on at The Washington Post Food section and doing other culinary freelance projects. Prior to that, I spent a few years editing cookbooks at Phaidon Press, and before that I was writing cookbooks with chefs and such. See my work here. In my past life, I spent ten years on Wall Street.
I was born in Russia, grew up in Boston, and now live in Brooklyn in Silver Spring, Maryland, with my husband, Andrew Freedman, a journalist, our toddler, Avi, and our linebacker-sized tabby, Forrest. From 2001 until mid-summer 2018, I lived in Brooklyn and NYC, but an amazing job opportunity came up for Andrew, so here we are.
I like strong coffee; horizontal stripes; mid-century modern design; austere beaches of the Northeast; and my LLBean boots. Some of the things I like to eat are: Wellfleet oysters, wild Maine blueberries, pickles, herring, all things potato, brisket, cabbage, tacos, and ice cream. I prefer wine to cocktails; beer to bubbly; and bourbon to vodka.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
